Neeyat Episode 2

Posted by Faraz On July - 3 - 2011 4 COMMENTS

It’s always the hardest to actually choose a word or a line to start. And that’s what’s happening with me right now. I don’t know from where to start. It’s been a while since I stopped writing regularly. So I am finding it difficult to be in complete flow. Is it natural? Who knows? Anyway so we are talking about Neeyat’s 2nd episode.  As mentioned in the 1st review.Neeyat is a very simple story that has been handled with brilliant care by MJ. What disappoints me the most is the fact that It does resemble with many Indian movies. Remember the movie chori choru chupke chupke (salman khan. Rani and preity starrer)  or the very old shabana azmi movie in which she gets a surrogate mother for his husband. In this case, deepti is the surrogate mother for humyun’s green card. Wah kya line mari hai meiney :)

Episode 2 was to establish the characters and their relationship, what I liked about it was the fact that It was fast paced and went straight into the development of the story. Deepti moves in with humyun saeed so that they could start their paper marriage process.

For some very odd reasons neeyat hasn’t created the kind of buzz that is always expected from Mehreen jabbar’s serial and I really think that the story is the real culprit here. Neeyat lies on a water thin story line. I was really disappointed to see that in an MJ Serial but I guess let it be. Jab hum her bar tareef kar saktey hain tou burai bhi ker saktey hain J I am really not impressed by Neeyat so far.

However the saving grace of this drama is turning out to be deepti’s acting . Deepit gets the best role of her drama career and she does complete justice to it. She is natural, oozes confidence and brings energy in her every scene; she is the real show stealer.

Humyun saeed doest get much scope, I hope he gets to have a meatier role later, but in all honesty I don’t think that will be the case. I am not being judgmental but sometimes I feel that MJ will always make serials that are woman oriented. And the male characters are merely there to just add on to the story, or to put it this way, I always felt that mard ka character bus isi liye hota hai key end mein everyone should say kay “men are dogs” I might be wrong but that’s what I felt when I was watching neeyat and specially the scene in which deepti talks to humyun in his terrace. The dialogues, the attitude all focus on making the viewers feel negative about man.

Mahira :) what can I say about her.. She is too sweet to be said anything, however … is she the candy floss of this serial or what? Her acting is still amateurish bohat time chahey ussey.especially when she is acting in the likes of deepti and humyun saeed. May be her role doesn’t demand that much or I guess since deepti is acting so well, she makes everyone else’s acting, look below par.

Or reh gaye humarey becharey Ahsun miya :) yaar kasam say I feel so bad for him.he has actually started to think that he has a chance now. Again another male bashing. Why MJ ? just why man? So now we  know that mahira and humyun haven’t broken up but everytime ahsun will try to do something sweet we will say, bechara, apni taraf say bohat khush hai key chalo mera chance laga :)  lets see how it goes.

I would like to end the review on a question. What does a woman really want? Okay now dont start thinking kay yeh ek dum say kidher say agaya sawal?  Remember the scene between marium and farah?

Yaar wohi wala scene in which farah tells Marium that she has gotten the role of her life time and this can be the biggest break in her career however what made me surprise was the fact that farah starts getting jealous when marium tells her that she is getting married. So what is it that a woman values more?

A great career? Or a blissful married life?

Neeyat Episode 1

Posted by Faraz On June - 26 - 2011 2 COMMENTS

N for Newyork, N for Neeyat :) I don’t know if I should talk about the wonderful Newyork, or the fresh serial by our very own Mehreen Jabbar aka MJ .

Neeyat is a new drama serial, directed by mehreen Jabbar that talks about a life of a normal Out of status Pakistani living in Newyork. Since most of our readers are overseas Paksitanis, I am pretty sure that they will connect to it instantly.

Set in the back drop of Newyork. Neyaat tells a story of a Pakistani illegal immigrant (Humyun Saeed) who has just lost his job because of the recession. One of the main reasons of him being the victim is the fact that he is not having a legal status.  Here comes in Mahira Khan, His GF who comes with an idea of him getting into a paper marriage for the sake of a green card.

So this is the basic plot line. And what will happen from here is something that Neeyat is going to be about.

I have always found Mehreen Jabbar’s direction, fast, and to the point, she doesn’t drag the story and gets directly to the point, which is the USP of her direction let it be VASL, Daam or the new serial Neeyat. Her unique style of storytelling put her far ahead of her peers. But let’s pause for a minute and talk about something that made me watch Neeyat.

I have always loved Newyork. The Brooklyn bridge Verrazano Bridge (My fav), The sky scrapper buildings, time square, central park, people reading books almost everywhere, the subways and not to forget the extremely fit girls :)

Newyork remains my favorite city, I still remember how I watched kal ho na ho 3 times in a row just because of new york and then went there to actually see what the city was all about.  I was awestruck by the beauty of it and that was one of the reasons why I took time out to actually watch the serial on youtube.

Episode 1 was merely about getting to know the characters and the basic plot of the drama. There is Humuyan saeed who is struggling because of his illegal status. Mahira Khan who loves Him a lot.  Ahsan khan who loves mahira and then we have deepti, a homeless. Jobless, flamboyant nyc girl who is a struggling actress as well. Oh btw , we saw you mehreen J during the audition scene J …..

The only thing that really wowed me about Neeyat  1st episode was

  1. The cinematography
  2. The beautiful depiction of Newyork.

Neeyat depicts a different image of Pakistani dramas. The Camera work, the colors as well as the handling of the subject have put this drama a product that We Pakistanis can easily be proud of. Neeyat is fresh and has been executed brilliantly. The only weak link however in the story is Ahsan khan, I personally think that he does not suit the role he has been given, I guess Faisal Qureshi might have been a better choice. But this is strictly my opinion. Mahira Khan is fresh and she looks beautiful in the serial. Humyun Saeed is complete natural and his presence adds so much spark in the serial.  Deepti is a wonderful Actor. Her role in the drama seems much different than the one she had in malaal.

At this point, its all wait and watch. Lets see how Neeyat shapes up later. From what we have seen in the 1st episode, it does promise to be a serial to watch in this season. However I feel that thecompetition is really tough in this particular season, Akbari ashgari, Mastana Mahi, Mera Naseeb , Umm e Kulsoom, all have very powerful story line.
